In this "Wild Bill Elliot" western, Elliot and two other lawmen (Myron Healey and Robert Bray) are assigned to take three outlaws to prison. Along the way, they agree to escort Phyllis Coates and her grandmother Florence Lake through Indian territory. Everyone's safety is threatened when one of the deputies (Healey) casts his lot with the criminals. Maverick was the first of three serendipitous collaborations between star Elliot and director Thomas Carr. Incidentally, Carr had just finished directing leading lady Phyllis Coates in several episodes of the Superman TV series.
